I know its an incredibly subjective topic, but I am in the market for a brew kettle and want to get one that will last. I don’t PLAN on ever going to 10gal batches so I will be looking at 10gal total volume kettles. I plan on eventually going all grain but for right now this will just be for extract brewing. A megapot of the same volume with brewmometer and ball valve is half the price of a blichmann.
So given that, can anyone convince me it’s worth the extra money to go with a blichmann? I could buy lots of cool stuff with that extra $200+
